Does someone can confirm that "Q" on this release is the original mix ?
Thank you very much !

... and if you play 'Q' at 0.75, you have a great cosmic/downtempo track! same bpm as Come Together by Primal Scream, both released in the same year!

Listen to 'q' then listen to the 'qube mix' of Papua New Guinea (only featured on the original 1991 press of PNG) and prepare for an unrivalled taste in pure dance music energy from 27 years ago (at the time of posting).nothing has really surpassed it since which shows how influential it has been.

I'd say Awesome 3 borrowed the same drum hook and sub bass idea on Possessed (Obsessed)

?????? not sure what the rave reviews are about the "q" track.. not for me.. Chile Of The Bass Generation is possibly IMO THE funkiest tracks of all TIME! I've been searching for it almost 25 YEARS!!!!!! WTF "Q" !!!Look for DJ Hype mixes featuring this..

I first heard Q on a local pirate radio station and luckily taped the show but it but it took me a while to work out what the track name was (cheers Mr Mumble). Q is an awesome track, and it still sounds great today. The A-side is great too. The 3rd track is an oddity, doesn't sound right on 33 or 45rpm and no matter what you do with the pitch it doesn't sound "right".

Brian Dougan & Gary Cobain from The Future Sound Of London appeared since 1990 with their Mental Cube project, and their most famous music would be "Q", re-released in 1991 and 1992 (curiously the rarest and first version of "Papua New Guinea" by FSOL was baptised 'Dumb Child Of Q') – though Mental Cube's first single name, "Chile Of The Bass Generation" had a homonym tune where the duo sampled the legendary Breakbeats classic "The Fuzz And Da Boog" (1976) from Clarence 'Fuzzy Haskins', member of Parliament-Funkadelic.

It seems a little crazy that copies of this range from 10-120 pounds. I could understand a slight fluctuation but hey, there ya go.
This particular copy of Q (which actually features as a B side track) is in my opinion, the only one out of the 3 different versions worth owning. 1. It was the first release, 2. it has the Buggy G Riphead cover (which for those of you who dont know, is the dude that did all the early cover art for FSOL right back to Stakker Humaniod) and 3. it has the only version of Q worth owning plus 4. it has extra tracks by FSOL which can only be a bonus to collectors.
I could never figure out why it had featured as a B side track but was obviously soon realised as the main track. Q really is an era defining track for me which i have been tracking down for years after i foolishly sold my copy. I paid a tenner (cheers fella)
This is the one, forget the rest. Save the cash
